Ti Amo

Wednesday, October 26, 2016

Siracusa was spectacular. A heart-singing, soul-springing place for a cloudwatcher and blue sky lover like me. All the duyvkens, walking together, enjoying the blue, chatting, laughing, playing, eating. It was quite a day. Ti amo indeed!

Looking Up

Wednesday, October 19, 2016

I can't help wondering what kinds of lives are people living in the rooms behind those windows.

My Big and My Little

Saturday, October 15, 2016

G and the littlest duckling holding hands on the bus. They both fell asleep shorting after I snuck this photo from across the aisle. Sometimes the moment and the lighting are just right. And the bus was moving so slowly the photo isn't blurry - thank you traffic jam!

The Littlest Duckling is nearly 3

Let's have a slice of coconut cake and try to figure out how on earth that happened.

Bring a Plate

Thursday, September 15, 2016

Butternut pumpkin roasted with cinnamon, thyme, salt and olive oil then tossed through salad greens, red onion, sweet tomatoes, toasted almond and walnuts, and goats cheese, and served with caramelised balsamic vinaigrette. One of my my favourite salads to make as a take along.

Night Sky

We saw the Bourne movie tonight and as we walked into the cinema we saw this beautiful sight above us. How wonderful it is to feel the warmth of spring and to know that (contrary to GoT reports) summer is coming.

Aminals - as duckling would say

A month ago my sister organised a farmyard party for my nephew's 5th birthday. It was so much fun -all the little duyvkens are still talking about it. It came to mind again last night when G pulled out one of her favourite poem compilations for children and was reading one called 'Mum Won't Let Me Keep a Rabbit'. The poor petless duyvkens had a great time with the guinea pigs, lambs and yes, rabbits at the party.

I have a list of demands

Monday, August 22, 2016

The first item on the list is going to back to spend a little more time with the fairies in the driveway. They're wonderful kids now of course but oh how I loved it when they were this size.

The Yellow House

It looks so cosy. I want to move in.
